  1. I've been searching around for this issue as the workaround I use in Xfce doesn't seem to work in Plamsa 5: ~/.icons/default/index.theme[icon theme] Inherits=theme-name Anyone know how to force chrome to use custom mouse theme in Plasma 5?
  2. Hello. I've been away from funtoo for a while and gotten a bit rusty. Am I right to assume that to downgrade kernel you just mark the kernels you don't want, and do "emerge debian-sources"?
  3. ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AMD FX 4130 3.8 Ghz 12 GB RAM Evga GeForce 960 GTX 4 GB I have dual boot with Windows 7 for some multiplayer games that I play with friends and The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt.
  4. The install guide for funtoo recommends using systemrescuecd. You are correct. The Intel Pentium G630 is a sandy bridge CPU.
  5. Funtoo and Gentoo are among the Linux distributions that are hardest to use. I wouldn't beat yourself about it if I were you. The pursuit of knowledge is not a waste of time, and on that road we all make mistakes. Mistakes is perhaps what we learn most from, so it's not all bad. :)
  6. Try glxspheres or glxspheres64 / optirun glxspheres or optirun glxspheres64. I would recommend running steam with primusrun steam instead of optirun steam. See here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6316-GJKC-7437 Is your user in the bumblebee group? (remember log out then back in to enable changes) Have you tried disabling bumblebee then enabling it? sudo /etc/init.d/bumblebee stop sudo rc-update delete bumblebee default sudo rc-update add bumblebee default sudo /etc/init.d/bumblebee start
  7. I find that Funtoo is more stable than Gentoo and there is a big advantage in getting a debian-sources kernel that you can slim down yourself or set up the gentoo-sources, or other kernels. Another reason why I prefer Funtoo is that there is more innovation than in Gentoo (more quickly), and there are some pretty cool features in Funtoo that Ge too don't have (more stage architectures, epro etc). Also, git portage ftw. There is the question of you prefer the community in Gentoo deciding, which takes a long time or a few people deciding who has the best interest of the users at hea
  8. From experience using Systemd distros it's like Windows, sometimes it breaks on its own. There have been several time when my system couldn't boot cause Systemd messed up the booting. I've used OpenRC less than Systemd, but OpenRC has never been unstable for me. This is why I think that Systemd is bad, but the main reason is that Systemd tries to do too much. I don't want an init system with a million functions. I want an init system that is just an init system. Init systems shouldn't be complicated, that's when errors start happening. Understanding systemd is like understanding
  9. I'd rather not look in my world or package use.... :mellow:
  10. - Just in case I cloned my entire system with clonezilla. - Sysrescd, mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdxX. - fstab filesystem entry for /home from xfs to ext4. - copy all /home files back to new /home that replaced xfs partition. - chown to fix permissions for entire /home/user. Done
  11. Are you saying that systemd is all about the aesthetics and not about the technical? :rolleyes:
  12. There are some games on steam that for some reason won't run with a xfs partition over 1 tb. Xfs can't be shrinked. What I want to do (possible without problems)?: - Take a backup of the entire /home parition. - Boot gparted and delete xfs paritition. - Make new xfs partition under 1 tb, with the same /dev/sdXx.

  14. I have yet to slim down on the kernel configs for debian-sources. I haven't considered boot time to be the most important thing to configure yet.
  15. I might've been confusing terms, was a bit tired yesterday. I don't have a pure64 profile enabled. I have masked emul packages and set 64 bit flags.
  16. LXQT is considered to be beta software. I think that would explain why it's masked on your stable system. In most cases, packages are masked because of one or more of these reasons: - Alpha/beta. - Known bugs in packages. - Doesn't have builds for all architectures. - Proprietary licensing.
  17. Mine is really small atm. Had to work on other things on my system first before I finetune it. MAKEOPTS="-j5" LINGUAS="en_GB" VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia" USE="alsa pulseaudio -gnome -kde" ACCEPT_LICENSE="*" source /var/lib/layman/make.conf
  18. I have a pure 64-bit system with no emul packages. So I can install skype without having to install emul packages now? Cool. Nice fix seeing that the skype team can't even make a 64-bit application (haha). :) Thanks a lot!
  19. So to get things straight, you installed funtoo and rebooted, but after you reboot you couldn't find any network interfaces?
  20. I ran into some problems with gnome-extra/cinnamon in an update. The compile phase failed, and I can't seem to downgrade either by masking, removing newest and downgrading, still get a compile phase error. emerge -pqv '=gnome-extra/cinnamon-2.4.7' [ebuild N ] gnome-extra/cinnamon-2.4.7 USE="networkmanager nls" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7" gnome-extra/cinnamon-2.4.7 build log: https://mega.nz/#!HZlFAY6B!xcEObx7ZeeegDZGZ1mla0D4XjvCcTz6ErsXht8LT9mE emerge --info '=gnome-extra/cinnamon-2.4.7' Portage 2.3.6-r9 (funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit, gcc-4.9.2, glibc-2.20-r1, 3.19.3
  21. Finally found a theme setup that doesn't look like crap.
